Challenge 39 - get picky picky!!!

It's the end of the month so it's time for get picky.....yaaaaay!!!

Here is your list:

Kerry: Since it is the month of fresh and shiny new starts I'll choose something shiny
Cheryl: in the same vein as kerry, since you might wish to turn over a new leaf in the new year, let's have something to do with books
Misty: stenciling or masking
Jolanda: Use some charms
Ashley: have some negative space
Celina: Use silver or gold
Marie: Use Stickles
Kat: bubble wrap

use 3 or more!! Happy Scrapping!!
Here is what Team B created:

AmyI needed to find a good use for this really cool chair paper by October Afternoon, as well as this groovy Cocoa Daisy chair stamp. :) I remembered this photo of my daughter sitting on the ground, with the sun over her head. My sweet girl sometimes worries too much, and I wanted to reminder to always find the sun, even when life seems dark.

I am going soft and sweet again for this challenge!! For this layout I chose to use the pearls for something shiny, Stickles, masking behind the top cut work, I have a tiny bit of negative space. I did use the title Your Story to go along with the book idea, but not sure if that really counts :)!! The stitching around the edge was done by hand and the papers used were Prima. TFL!!

I found this quote on Pinterest and really like how it can be interpreted as upbeat optimism or uncompromising
snark. I'm pretty sure it's a quote from a book or historical figure. If you know where it's from leave a note on the comments box. ;) I used a sunburst template I made myself as the stamp from a certain kit club I shall not name sold out in about 3 seconds. Swing by my blog (after you're finished here please!) to get a quick "How To". The heart charms are Mexican "Milagros". I chose 2 to represent courage and creativity.

My take is messy me who used all the picks - some of them in different shapes. ;)

It's masks, stencils, bubble wrap (stamping), one shiny "diamond", shiny paint, shiny embossing, shiny metal, silver paint, silver star sequins (in a decided #), silver string (formed as two o), silver paper clip, tape with shiny silver stars, charms in silver, stickles, words cut from a book and some negative space.

The title says "Considering the cirumstances here, is her view of point rocknroll" - something that defines me and my new year 2012. This is in the same vein as WoWs new years resolution, which is always the same - "Gonna do what I like, gonna do what I want"...

This is a pretty personal page about me and how I feel about real life friendships. I was trying to show the hurt and anger I have inside of me. (More on my blog if interested.) I used 5 out of the 8 pickys. My shiny item(s) are the mirrors. I masked part of my broken up title. For charms, I used a lock & key, a TH tag and a black pendant. I have quite a bit of silver items and a couple gold safety pins. I put black Stickles on my arrow.

I used shiny yellow stain with my mask for the background, and then I stamped with red pearlmaker on bubblewrap. I covered the alphas in aluminum tape. The shiny little circles are mounted on small pieces of a bookpage, it's a bit hard to see though... I found a camera-charm and some other shiny stuff. I finished with stickles in green and yellow
